In the early 19th century, Marcel Proust was given a questionnaire called "an album to record thoughts and feelings," also known as a "confession album." At the time, it was popular among English families to assure that the man or woman was marriage-worthy and bona fide.

The TV show The Actors Studio had their own version that the host would use, asking the actors the questions while live in the studio.
For many years it has been a favorite of Vanity Fair magazine readers, and they now have an online version that you can do and compare your answers to celebrities.
